Numerous different ships systems and controls being maintained by engineer officers are used on all types of vessels today. These consist of engine room systems such as lube oil, fuel oil, and seawater, along with deck officer’s roles such as cargo recording and navigation.
This guide to hardware deals with industry-standard items of which, though common, the selection of can make or break the repair, upgrade, or maintenance of essential equipment. How much do you know about the technical standards for the fasteners, bearings, belts, and seals you’re already using?
How many times have you said, “I love that city. It is so clean and well organized.” How many times have you been impressed by how cities like London and Venice are able to handle their municipal services so effectively? You can thank the municipal engineers who play the major role behind this.
Materials play a vital role in the construction and manufacturing of equipment and tools. Choosing the right kind of materials add to the economy and life of machinery. In this guide to engineered materials we look at the need for and importance of studying topics in materials science.
Most rotational applications in industry and manufacturing depend on electric motors. Our day to day life depends on electronic and electrical devices, and they, too, in turn depend on electric motors. In this guide, we look at AC and DC motor designs and operational theory.
Bridges are structures that connect two land masses separated by valleys or rivers, but they serve a greater purpose as they bridge the gap between different places, cultures, and societies. Discover how civil engineers construct bridges that win out over the deepest valleys and turbulent waters.
Highway construction and engineering includes planning, designing, and building of highways. History stands witness that good roads lead to prosperity for distant societies. If a road is well planned and then executed according to the plan, a highway can open the gates of growth and development.
American infrastructure is rapidly degrading. Already old and decrepit relative to other nations with developed economic systems, a looming era of budget cuts and limited investment across the board threatens to further undermine the United States’ economic competitiveness as key systems fail.
This guide will help you learn about the various methods of heat treatment and measurement aspects of the mechanical properties of metals. Topics involved include the hardening, softening (annealing), and tempering processes carried out on critical components.
